      when evening had come,    
23 And when he got       he got
  into the boat,*       into a boat*
  his disciples followed him.       with his disciples,
      he said to them,   and he said to them,
      "Let us go across   "Let us go across
      to the other side."   to the other side
          of the lake."
    36 And leaving the crowd,   So
      they took him with them   they set out,
      in the boat,*    
      just as he was.    
      And other boats were    
      with him.    
          and as they sailed
          he fell asleep.
24 And behold, 37 And 23 And
  there arose a great <turmoil>   a great storm of wind arose,   a storm of wind came down
  on the sea,       on the lake,
      and the waves* beat    
      into the boat,    
  so that   so that    
  the boat was   the boat was   and they were
  being swamped   already <overloaded>.   filling
  by the waves;*       with water,
          and were in danger.
  but he was 38 But he was in the stern,    
  <sleeping>.   <sleeping> on the cushion;    
25 And they went   and they 24 <So> they went
  and woke him,   woke him   and woke him up,
  saying,   and said to him,   saying,
  "Save, Lord;   "Teacher, do you not care   "Master, Master,
  we are perishing."   <that> we <are perishing>?"   we are perishing!"
    39 And he awoke   And he awoke
  [see Matt 8:26b below]   and rebuked the wind,*   and rebuked the wind
      and said to the sea,*   and the raging waves;
      "Peace! Be still!"    
      And the wind ceased,   and they ceased,
      and there was a great calm.*   and there was a calm.*
26 And he said to them, 40 He said to them, 25 He said to them,
  "Why are you afraid,*   "Why are you afraid?*    
  O men of little faith?"   Have you no faith?"   "Where is your faith?"
          And they were afraid,*
  Then he rose   [see Mark 4:39 above]   [see Luke 8:24 above]
  and rebuked the winds*        
  and the sea;*        
  and there was a great calm.*        
27 And the men marveled, 41 And they were filled   and they marveled,
      with awe,    
  saying,   and said to one another,   saying to one another,
  "What sort of man is this,   "Who then is this,   "Who then is this,
  that   that   that he commands
  even winds and sea   even wind and sea   even wind and water,
  obey him?"   obey him?"   and they obey him?"
